Steam clean's a better quality in my opinion.

Quality over price every time. Dry might be cheaper but steam clean does such a better job.

akro13 Carpet cleaning is a difficult task but at home I just use a vacuum machine and a carpet cleaner which I bought from a catering equipment store. Till now it is working fine.

greencarpetcare Both, steam as well as dry cleaning are one of the best and most popular methods of carpet cleaning. And, the cleaning method totally depends on the materials used in your carpet. Hence, consider taking help of professional carpet cleaning company.

With proper use of the right equipment and chemistry, steam cleaning will produce the best results. Employing additional measures like fans and and air conditioning, will also help to speed drying times. We will usually get most carpets dry within 3-4 hours.
yes, i agree

maxrobeson I freshly had the steam clean and it is useless against hard stains. I thought it would clean deeper into the carpet but it didnít make much of a difference.

Trojancarpetcare Truck mounted steam cleaning is the most powerful method in the industry and the method our company Los Angeles carpet cleaning uses exclusively as well.

Steam is the best but....

Steam cleaning is always the best but its disadvantages is that it does not kill the germs like chemicals will.

Yes, I am completely agree with you that I can't even decide the perfect method for marble flooring cleaning. But, I have an option to make clean through vacuum cleaner or cleaning equipment.

Bill While there are some applications for dry cleaning carpet it pales in comparison to truck mounted steam carpet cleaning. This is the method my company carpet cleaning orange county uses exclusively.

Mcatt Dry carpet cleaning is just not as deep as a steam cleaning is or as long lasting. Carpet cleaning Tampa is a truck mounted carpet steam cleaning company.

kristoffersava Which Cleaning method is best is mostly depend on the fiber that is what your carpet is made up off,Whether your carpet has been treated for stain resistance, the importance of drying time, whether anyone in the home has allergies, Whether your carpet has been treated for stain resistance, Where the carpet is? All methods have advantages. Professional cleaners should be able to advise you on the best method for your home or business.
